What can happen if I’m working for Company A on a valid H1B but have an offer from Company B and it is processing my visa transfer?

If at any point I decide not to join company B and continue with company A, is there an issue?

There is no issue if you continue to work for company A even if and when the transfer for company B is approved.  However, if you do not intend to join company B, it would probably be "cleaner" to just have them revoke the petition before it is adjudicated.  That way, there would not be an outstaning approved petition for you with a company that you are not working for.
